FT: Dreams FC 0-0 (6-5 on pen.) Medeama: Believers setup final with Phobians


Ghana Premier League returnees Dreams FC defeated Medeama 6-5 on penalties after a goalless draw in regulation time to qualify to the final of the 2018 Ghalca G8 tournament on Thursday at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

The Still Believe out had a larger share of the exchanges in the first half of the game but couldn’t turn their possession into goals.

By the 22nd minute, Dreams thought they had taken the lead after Richard Addae was played through by his teammate but his lob failed to hit the back of the net.

Minutes later, Addae made amends to his earlier miss but he was rather unfortunate as the referee failed to award his effort as a legitimate goal. Sharani’s pass found Addae and the striker saw his shot hitting the underneath of the crossbar and crossing the goal line but referee Alex Nsiah and his assistants failed to see it from their angle.

The second half produced similar episodes like the first half, as few chances came the way of the two sides.

After a pulsating 90 minutes without any goal scored, the two clubs needed penalty to separate them and Dreams won 6-5.

They will square it off with Hearts of Oak on Sunday in the final, after the Phobians also defeated rivals Asante Kotoko 4-2 on penalties on Wednesday in Kumasi.
